High schools sweethearts Emily and James went their separate ways after graduation day: Emily headed to Boston University to study special education, while James attended West Point and became an Army helicopter pilot. Yet the couple couldn't keep apart, spending evenings on the phone and weekends together as friends. "Each trip was better and better," Emily says. "We laughed, cried and just had so much fun together. This is when we realized that we still had something special. We couldn't deny it any longer. We were meant for each other."
